I have a 7/94 ED Falcon Gli Sedan, 4.0 litre auto, air,
steer, and ABS.
Apart from the shitty brake fade (standard), the
problem starts here: I replaced my battery 2 months
ago (Apollo, Oz made, 2 years warranty). When I put
the battery in and bolted it back up, I started the
car, and there it was, the ABS light on constantly in
bright red, saying "CHECK ABS". So I did.
My uni teacher told me to disconnect the ABS from the
actual main supply unit, which sits under the front
left gaurd, under a plastic cover. I did this, twice,
once with the ignition on and once with it off= NO GO,
still have red light.
He also told me to disconnect each ABS sensor (the
ones that sit behind the disc, on the stub axle, held on by a small 10mm
bolt) and clean them with kerosene or degreaser. They
were really dirty, greasy, and covered in brake
I cleaned them, bolted them back up and still the light was there.
Checked all fuses, all OK.
Checked all wiring going to battery, all OK.
But the damn light is still on. I know for fact that
the actual ABS is not working, cos I know the feel and
difference know on this car between ABS and non ABS.
What do you think the problem is?
Any ideas anyone, please reply via posting a reply, email, or mobile.
